  • Professor of Global Public Health
  • Institute for Global Health
  • Faculty of Pop Health Sciences

I am Professor of Global Public Health, and lead a research theme analysing the use of evidence in policy processes, particularly in relation to gender, sexuality and health. I have lived and worked for much of the past 20 years in Asia, where I have gathered evidence, built capacity and helped develop policy for programmes focusing on gender, sexual health and rights. I work closely with national governments, civil society organisations, research partners, WHO and UNFPA in Asia and the Middle East. From 2012-1014 I was Wellcome Trust Senior Fellow in International Public Engagement, and focused on the use of public engagement in policy processes. 

I lead the newly established UCL Centre for Gender and Global Health, details of which are available here: http://ighgc.org

Research Themes
Research Summary

My research focuses on the following areas:

> Exploring the link between gender and health, and analysing institutional responses to gender in global health.

> Analysis of how empirical evidence is used in decision-making processes in global health priority-setting, policy formulation, and programme implementation. 

My work is funded by a variety of donors including EU, Wellcome Trust, ESRC, MRC and the UN.
